This print was inspired by a visit to Pompeii, Italy. Many of the vestibles of the houses have mosaic dogs on their floors, almost as a welcome mat (two of them are depicited in my print). One of the more famous mosaics is the one in the House of the Tragic Poet which included the wording: CAVE CANEM, which is Latin for Beware of Dog.
